To all those that responded to my question on what companies look for in
technical editors I send my belated thanks. The answers were very
informative and provided much to think about.

After reading them it seems that the editors skill in the field seems to
take on secondary importance compared with the need to make the
documentation easily understood to the end user.

To do a good job they must be knowledgeable in proper English usage while
providing additional value to the work. This is done by looking at the
larger picture.
Direct knowledge of the product, while helpful, is of secondary importance.

Again thanks to all those that responded and I am sorry that it took so long
to express my appreciation.
